Well, what is happening imo is that the kids are not culturally integrating with each other. They are culturally integrating with their phones,
basically, in some sort of networked society. Culturally integrating would be like having shared experiences or values or cultural functions to help
build trust and companionship and community.
So - a networked society allows someone to be an individual at the fullest, and find other people online who share their views, hobbies, or whatever.
A society based on the physical plane means that people meet someone else based on location, not shared interests or values, and have to work together
to compromise and integrate their views into a larger whole, or something like that, anyway.
Like... I used to hang out with my friends pre-social-networking and we would decide together what to watch or play. These days, you decide you wanna
play anything you want, and meet up with people who also do that...
I find that scientific research does a better job of describing what is going on with the world than speculation and divination, but - I do have my
AT any rate. I think this is a temporary phenomenon. We should be returning to our regularly scheduled pre-internet cultural status at some point imo.
Maybe both worlds will co-exist.
If it's an unhealthy situation for the human race, the human race will reject it or adapt to it in a manner to make it healthy. I would say within ten
years, ten years is a LONG time these days.
Look at anything that gets taken to extremes, it hits a breaking point at some point where it simply can't progress in that direction anymore and most
of the time things change then.
